All of the following are class features of the paladin of supreme order.

  • Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Paladins of supreme order are proficient with all simple and martial weapons, with all types of armor (heavy, medium, and light), and with shields (except tower shields).

  • Detect Chaos (Sp) : At will, a paladin of supreme order can use detect chaos, as the spell.
  • Smite Chaos (Su): Once per day, a paladin of supreme order may attempt to smite chaos with one normal melee attack. She adds her Charisma bonus (if any) to her attack roll and deals 1 extra point of damage per paladin od supreme order level.

  • Deadly Touch (Su): Beginning at 2nd level, a paladin of supreme order can cause wounds with a successful touch attack . Each day she can deal a total number of hit points of damage equal to her paladin level x her Charisma bonus.
